For this project, I used foil for the centre and created a barrier of acrylic diamonds to keep the different colours from running into each other.
Using foil adds an extra dimension and shine to the piece, I would highly recommend you giving this a go. You won’t be disappointed with the results.
For this project I used:
- MDFBoard 120 x 60 cm
- White Wood Primer
- Black Acrylic Paint for the base colour
- Aluminium Foil
- Acrylic Diamonds (https://amzn.to/2Y7pVJi)*
- Acrylic Shapes (https://amzn.to/2Xb4YPX)*
- Crushed Glass from Ikea (alternative product: https://amzn.to/2WCPS1R)*
- India Ink – Teal and Blue (https://amzn.to/2TiyYDy)*
- Colour Obsession Pigment Paste – Stormy Seas (Dark Blue)
- Le Rez Expressions Epoxy Pigment Paste – Angel White (http://bit.ly/lerezmatpaste)
